About the Company
KNUK THEATRE is an International Theatre Company based in London -Madrid and Buenos Aires.
Originally founded by Ana Mirtha Sariego as ‘City of The Moon Theatre’, the company was reborn in 2017 with co-founders Ryan Murphy and Nicolás Greco under the new name ‘Knuk Theatre’.
We devise work as an ensemble, drawing on aspects of Theatre, Circus, Dance and Movement. Knuk aims to provoke audiences by creating high-impact visual and physical theatre.
Sharing a particular interest in the eccentric and the absurd, the company uses clown, puppetry, slapstick and multi-lingual text to interrogate big human themes such as identity, love, loss and belonging.
Knuk believes in Theatre that has no limits or fears. Theatre that is so imprudent that it dares to challenge the boundaries of art and life itself. Theatre that is not only entertainment, but also a means of connecting and sharing with the audience.
We create with passion and relentless enthusiasm. As if it was the first day we had ever gathered together in a rehearsal room. As if we had never fallen, failed and recovered a thousand times before.
Knuk takes its inspiration from the works of different artists from a diverse array of disciplines, such as Sammuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, Magritte, Escher, Jacek Yerka, Arvö Part, Aki Kaurismaki, Emir Kusturika, Charlie Chaplin, Laurel & Hardy.
We are lucky enough to be in collaboration with the wonderful stupidity of exciting artists and performers from different nationalities and backgrounds:
Jed Hancock-Brainerd (U.S.A), Rebecca Noon (U.S.A), Diego Akselrad (Argentina), Randy Gingsburg (U.S.A) Carlos Jiménez-Alfaro (Spain), Alejandro de Santos (Spain), Emiliano Calcagno (Spain).
